Motivated by the recent experiments about candidates for glueball from different processes, we discuss in this paper the production of 0++ glueball from double diffractive scattering at momentum transfer $\vert t\vert\lower4pt\hbox{$\buildrel <\over\sim$} 1GeV^2$ in high energy $p+p(\bar p)$ collision. We employ the phenomenology of Pomeron ($I\!\! P$) of Donnachie-Landshoff, the field theory model of $I\! P$ of Landshoff-Nachtmann and the relevant calculating approach. We assume while $I\! P$ coupling with glueball, the 0++ glueball can be considered as a bound state of two non-perturbative massive gluons. We evaluate the dependence of cross section for 0++ glueball production on system energy $\sqrt{s}$ and show that it could be tested experimentally.
